to explain the nature of pain

to explain the nature of pain
and not give it all away
the secret and the hurt mind
lasts longer but body scars
and comes again stronger
and neither go away.
you can forgive guilt,
but not pain, pain stays
until it's taken away
by drugs that freeze the mind
except that sometimes medicine only
covers the pain for a while
a little while, and then it comes back
some pain never goes away.
